Very seldom does a public servant spend 22 years catching flak from a fired-up audience for little money, no fanfare and numerous criticism. Don Smallwood has been Hall County Planning Commission Chair and deserves our plaudits for a job well done. He was always fair and let each side have their say before a final vote was taken.
If you see Don on his jet ski going up the Tennessee River, on the golf course, at church or wherever, tell him thank you.
